Contact: John Gillispie, (304) 529-2701, Ext. 307
The September 2013 Tuesday Tour at the Huntington Museum of Art will focus on portraiture and has a "You Belong in a Museum" theme. The guided tour at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, will include a tour of the exhibit titled Population, which features portraits of more than two dozen people from the Huntington community.
After the tour, refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
The Population exhibit by Walter Gropius Master Artist Ray Turner is on view at HMA through Nov. 10, 2013. This exhibit is accompanied by a catalogue with essays by Peter Frank, Mitchell Kahan, Ph.D., Susan Warner, Barbara Matilsky, Patricia Leach, and Ray Turner. Population is generously sponsored by Jeff Markley, The Markley Group, Dottie and Bob King, Thrive Foundation for Youth.
The Walter Gropius Master Artist Series is funded through the generosity of the Estate of Roxanna Y. Booth, who wished to assist in the development of an art education program in accordance with the proposals of Walter Gropius, who designed the Museum’s Gropius Addition, as well as the Gropius Studios. The Museum is indebted to Roxanna Y. Booth’s son, Alex Booth, for his participation in the concept development of the Gropius Master Artists Workshops.
HMA is offering guided tours for adults with Tuesday Tours on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Tuesday is HMA’s free admission day and HMA is open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
